This is a well cared-for and upgraded van that has taken us on many travel adventures. I purchased this Westy from the previous owner in 2012 (from Tucson, AZ). The van came with an extensive stack of receipts and record-keeping—a practice that I’ve maintained. All documentation will be transferred to the new owner. Up until 2020, this van has lived in Austin, TX. From 2013 to 2020, this van was my daily driver/commuter and adventure-van on the weekends. After a major move and job change, we’ve upsized to a Ford Transit; sadly, I need to let my beloved Westy go. This van has been my passion and hobby since it was purchased—most recently, I’ve refreshed the suspension and front end (see below for details), which [maybe] has 300 miles on it. I’ll also be passing along a collection of parts and extras that I’ve accrued throughout the years. While the family is saddened to see it go, I’m excited to pass it on to the next hobbyist! (I hope you don’t mind attention because this van gets a lot wherever it goes!)
